drove by today and the new access area is still roped off. I guess this means no stocked trout for the 2nd time in a row. When is their darn riverbank restoration going to be "ready" for use? I thought it was cool that they took out the old lowhead dam. But now that there's no dam, there's no dam trout fishing! I sent an email to the HRWA asking about it.

I don't care too much for the winter trout but I do like to catch my limit once or twice. And there's this old timer who usually is at the river access on stocking day to sell trout magnets and their gear for cheap. I have wanted to buy some TMs from him and catch a few trout. But so far it's still closed. Hopefully next month... Anyone in the franklin area a bit frustrated?
